Other types of forced labour may include any other activity that is forbidden by Article 23, as well as any other practice that is prohibited by this Article.

Article 24 deals with the prevention of children working in factories. It prohibits minors under the age of 14 from working in factories, mines, or any other hazardous workplace. This article is for the benefit of children and ensures that they live a safe, secure, and healthy existence.

Children are regarded as our country's future. Every nation has the responsibility to ensure that the future is bright by providing good food, education, and health to the country's children so that they can grow up to be strong enough to do something positive with their lives, which will eventually contribute to the nation's improvement and progress.

This Article, however, does not ban the employment of children in jobs that are both innocent and harmless, such as working in agricultural fields or in a food store.

It does not apply to the employment of youngsters in non-harmful work.
